    Well, it was quite a politicking session. Lets see where we stand now.
    It began with Madigan bringing Francois to Selena's Night Clinic. Francois was stating that he felt alright, other than a bit hungry, and made no mention of the blood sweat or tears he was experiencing. (The virus has a mild mind control to keep you from seeing your own symptoms, but you are able to see anyone else's. Francois had shown up at Gemma's new Elysium, and only Madigan and Gemma were there at the time, they do not know that Xenia the Nosferatu was also there. Selena contacted Ethel, the Malkavian nurse who is a germaphobe, to help at the Night Clinic and help tend to Francois. She did state they were taking usual medical precautions of gloves, face cover and scrubs. She had him drink some stored blood and expend blood to see how it reacted, and all seemed normal. He is currently at day 3 of the condition, requiring a second dot of blood to rise in the evening. It is at that time that a runner from the Prince came to fetch them to the council meeting about the Anarch Revolt.
    Renee summoned Ragman and Ethan in first to speak with them first and give them the situation. Both of them expressed concern over it, with Ragman wishing to speak with the Anarchs and know the reason for the grievances. The full council was convened and the situation discussed. Prince Hector of Yuma was brought in first and explained his situation. Then Jeremy MacNeil was brought it and explained how things unfolded. He requested from them a copy of the Gadsden Accords, wanting to use them as a frame work for governance of this new territory he had. He never directly said one way or another if the Anarchs were coming to Tucson, but made no comments about stopping the surge.
    The council came to the idea of sending/directing the Anarchs to Phoenix. That city represented many of the issues the Anarchs had with treatment in California. Selena contacted Nemo in Phoenix to have him discreetly gauge reaction to an Anarch uprising. Tucson feels stuck between a rock and a hard place. They have/had Archons in the new Territory between the US and Mexico, they have Phoenix to the north and now the Anarchs out west.
    The Primogen were tasked with discussing the situation with their clans that night and gathering the following night, but presenting it in a way to not bring about their very own Anarch uprising. Most of the clans were in agreement, they were loyal to the City above the Camarilla, but many made a call for their to be decisiveness on picking a side, no playing one side against the other hoping the stay out of it or on top.
    Tommy is still not in line with his Grand Sire. He feels that they made stupid mistakes leading up to the rebellion, and have no plan for afterwards. I equate this to him looking at it from outside, as he does understand that the Brujah might very well fall in with the Anarchs should they bring the fight to Tucson's door. Fortunately there is about 200+ miles of Werewolf territory between Tucson and California.
    Benjamin did bring up an interested point to Ethan, and talked about the possibility of sending the Anarchs to Phoenix, and then Ben and/or Ethan going north and helping to quell the disturbance and retake the territory for the Camarilla, putting themselves in a potion to be prince of Phoenix. Ethan is not actually opposed to this idea, just knows it has to be played carefully.
    As best can be seen, no clear decision has been made, but the plan in general is to foment discord in Phoenix how ever possible. Tucson will also be in contact with Karl Schrekt and giving him the information they have that the Tremere of Phoenix may not all be loyal to the Camarilla, and may have strong ties tot he Sabbat. It came to that because should Prince Birch in Phoenix come down to "quell an anarch uprising in Tucson," their claim might have less weight with them being potential Sabbat vampires themselves. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

      As for the disease, here is where that stands.

      It is transmissible by air from Vampires to human and Vampires to Vampires. Right now, Francois is on day 4 of infection. Any human that may have been near him during that time has a chance of infection, as well as any vampire that was near him on day 3. This include Selena, Gemma, Madigan, Renee, Ethel, Xenia. They all had to make Stamina rolls at a difficulty 6 to see if they were infected. Only Ethel failed her roll. Any vampire that they were in proximity to had to make a Stamina roll at difficulty 4 to see if they were infected. Only Danah failed that roll, she was in close proximity to Selena when they spoke of how the Menagerie wanted to procced in light of the Revolt. If all proximity exposures are not exposed again a second day, and pass their second stamina check, they are immune to the disease by contact or air. The problem will come in the humans that the vampires were exposed to, like the one that came to the Night Clinic to fetch Selena and Madigan. The vampires with Herds or that feed from the same batch of humans will be at major risk of infection, with their resistance difficulties increasing greatly. Will see how this plays out over the next few nights, and if word spreads about this or the revolt, and how the Sabbat will capitalize on it.
